The violent terror against Israelis just hit an astonishing low with the attack yesterday by a 12-year-old boy, making him the youngest stabbing suspect in the latest wave of violent attacks.
The Blaze reports “the 12-year-old and a 13-year-old, stabbed and moderately wounded an Israeli security guard in Jerusalem Tuesday, Israeli police said. This was the first of at least three Palestinian stabbing attempts that day in the Jerusalem area.
The Israel Police said that after being stabbed, the security guard shot one of the boys, while passengers at the light rail station where the attack occurred overpowered the other assailant.”
Palestinian Media Watch reports that Abbas’ Fatah movement has been using social media to promote more stabbing attacks, encouraging those like the two boys to continue the violence.
On its official Facebook page, Fatah has been using a new hashtag “#so_what” which taunts Israelis and their response to violence. The words refer to a video that went viral recently, showing an elderly Palestinian man arguing with Israeli soldiers. A soldier points to rioting Palestinians, saying: “They’re throwing rocks at us.” The old man replies: “So what, let them throw rocks.”
The following cartoon, posted on the website of Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission on Sunday, illustrates the idea that Palestinians are determined to continue their acts of violence, and in their words ‘resistance’, no matter what. In the cartoon, a soldier points a machine gun at a group of Palestinians, saying: “I will shoot you.” The Palestinians reply in unison: “#so_what”. The cartoon also implies Israeli soldiers kill peaceful Palestinians, woman, children, and Christians for no reason whatsoever.
In another example of the hashtag campaign, Fatah posted a video of a young Palestinian woman who stabbed and wounded an Israeli security guard,
“The stabbing operation (i.e., terror attack) carried out by the young Hilwa Salim Alyan in the Beitar Ilit settlement next to Bethlehem #Palestine #Jerusalem #so_what
Fatah also used the #so_what following the stabbing attack carried out by the 12-year-old Palestinian in Jerusalem. A photo from the boy’s arrest appeared on Fatah’s Facebook with the text “A photo of one of the boys accused of carrying out a stabbing operation (i.e., attack) in Jerusalem. #so_what”
But don’t forget, our Secretary of State and his spokesperson John Kirby see no difference between what the Palestinians are doing against Israelis and what Israelis are doing to defend themselves. #so-what else is new?
